Supporting the Trans and Gender-Diverse Community Through Skipping Stone

All Canadians deserve to live safely in this country. Canadians who are part of the 2SLGBTQ+ or Queer community are our employees, our neighbours, our friends, and our family. To ensure that our support for the Queer community fosters meaningful action, we are sponsoring Skipping Stone.

Skipping Stone is a Calgary-based charitable agency that provides inclusive and affirming care to trans and gender-diverse youth, adults and families by connecting them to the supports and services they need and deserve. Since their founding in 2017, Skipping Stone has supported over 10,000 families in over 30 communities across Alberta.

Our partnership with Skipping Stone includes a $10,000 sponsorship to help them reach their objective of ensuring a place “where trans and gender diverse individuals are surrounded by positivity, affirmation, and support free from barriers, stigma, and discrimination.”

Living by the Leaf is more than just saying “Happy Pride”. It means respecting others, no matter who they are or what their background may be. The 2SLGBTQ+ community is part of what makes Canada, Canada. We are proud to support the Queer community and organizations like Skipping Stone that allow all Canadians to be their authentic selves.
